Do we?

“If something that we didn’t know we had disappears, do we miss it?”

I don’t know what kind of reflection Meredith Grey wanted us to do, but this got me thinking for a second here. Do we or do we not miss something we didn’t know was ours? A hat, a disease, a song, a friend. It depends. People come and go, so do things; usually, we don’t know what we got until it’s gone. But the story changes when we didn’t know we had it — ‘it’ being whatever we had — in the first place. Oh, well. What we can’t see, can’t hurt us, right?

    i lost someone for two years without knowing it, when i found out. i beat myself for it i cried and i cried and i cried. the situation hit me harder than if i was to know she passed away when she did. i gained a lesson. a lesson of how i am oblivious to my surroundings unless i can manipulate them and control them. i miss her every day now, something that did not happen when she was still alive and breathing.

    just like you said ‘you dont know what youve got till its gone’
    but NOT knowing youve lost it and then finding out increases the degree of gravity.
    for not only do you kick yourself for not appreaciating what was in front of you but you also despise your self for being so oblivious to not noticing, and begin to question what kind of trance you must be in to not notice that someone of your own flesh was missing for two years.
